Another off the board.

Liam Hendriks signed with the White Sox. They are going to be a good team this year. Liam is getting $54 million over three years, with a club option.

I think what Minor Leaguer is saying is that there is hope for all of us. So work on your four-seamer.

Looks like the contract is an interesting one, I have the numbers wrong above:

I think his agent deserves a raise.

It is kind of interesting, he would be better off if they declined his option after the third year. I can’t understand making the buyout the same as his salary. He gets $54 million for three years or $54 million for four years. No real incentive for declining his option.

It still seems like a lot of money for a reliever. Especially one who will be 32 in a month’s time.
